Who brought cattle to the New World, introducing cows to North America in the 1600s?

  • Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto
  • Christopher Columbus's second expedition
  • The Quakers of Pennsylvania
  • The Pilgrims at Plymouth Colony correct

    When the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth Rock and established their Plymouth colony, none could have predicted the hardships they would face that first year. Many died but enough survived, with a little help from their Native neighbors, for the colony to continue. Things began to look up when additional ships arrived with more colonists in July 1623. Another ship arrived in March 1624, bringing a few more settlers and the New World's first cattle. Within 200 years, dairies and beef ranches dotted the landscape. Source: NewWorldEncyclopedia.org
